How do you save energy at home? Do you turn off the lights when you leave the room? Do you take shorter showers? Do you unplug all of your appliances?
All of those examples are a step in the right direction, but the real way to save is with a Nest Thermostat. Your thermostat controls half of your energy bill — that's a lot of energy — and Nest helps you save a majority of it (unlike other smart thermostats).
They show your savings with real-time data.
Instead of you trying to figure out how to program your thermostat, the Nest thermostat learns from you. Use it like a regular thermostat for a week (so it can get to know your cooling schedule) then it will create a schedule for you. It will also learn from your home and figure out how it heats or cools since no two homes are the same.
Since the Nest Thermostat knows how and when to heat and cool your home, it also knows how and when to save the most energy. According to Nest, Nest thermostats saved 10% to 12% on heating and 15% on cooling.
“Based on typical energy costs, we’ve estimated average savings of $131 to $145 a year. That means the Nest Thermostat paid for itself in under two years.”
We’ll take those savings any day!
You get to save all year round.
Nest has partnered with energy companies to help all of their customers save BIG on energy costs. There are two major programs they created — Seasonal Savings and Rush Hour Rewards.
Seasonal Savings: You guessed it — the Nest Thermostat fine-tunes your schedule as the season's change. This helps you save 5-10% per year.
Rush Hour Rewards: This program helps you earn rewards from your energy company, as long as you use less energy when everyone else is using more (like on a hot summer day when everyone’s running the AC).
